About Missy:
missy2 Whats In My Gym Bag? featuring Missy from MistransformationI made the decision to begin my weight loss journey after I became “sick and tired of being sick and tired” of feeling bad about my weight. My energy level was low and I wanted to have a healthier, happier lifestyle. There were a lot of personal struggles in my every day life because I was overweight. I hated having my picture taken, finding the right guy to date was like finding a needle in a haystack, and I just felt older than my years. Refusing to continue in my old ways, I started working out at the local YMCA and started to see the pounds dropping.
I have since lost over 60 pounds and have built a lot of muscle and pretty much changed my body composition. While working out I felt my body changing, I had more energy and soon was able to buy clothes that I wanted to wear—not just what fit or was comfortable for my size. Seeing these results motivated me to keep working hard to continue to my body transformation success. I lost over 4 clothing sizes and have given over a dozen huge garbage bags full of clothes to charity.
My initial fitness goals have come and gone long ago but I still continue to strive to the be the best I can be. I am constantly trying new challenges and pushing myself harder to reach new fitness. Greatest challenge/struggle: Breaking plateaus. What has been most positive about my weight loss journey: Being told by others that I have inspired and motivated them to begin their own journey into a healthier lifestyle. Top tips for readers and favorite exercises: Variety, variety, variety. Don’t let yourself get bored with your workouts. Step outside of the box, push yourself and try something new and fun. I did this by adding dance into my fitness routine.
Thanks again Missy for sharing what’s in your gym bag with us!!!  You can find Missy on her blog and on Twitter so stop by and say hello!!!

    Missy you are such an inspiration to us who are tired of being out of shape. What do you suggest doing in the way of exercising and using the machines at the gym?

    • I would suggest not using machines. I use free weights (dumbbells), the barbell, cable machine, medicine ball and kettlebells. I workout with weights in a way that keeps my heart rate up. I do this by doing dynamic movements and compound movements I don’t rest long between sets (only to grab a drink of water- towel off) and I lift heavy. Add some plyometric movements between exercises and you have one killer workout.
